POWR Baltic Stories Exchange
POWR Baltic Stories Exchange is looking to select 6 feature film projects in the early stages of development and which are actively seeking producers. The workshop is aimed to give mainly Nordic and Baltic scriptwriters access to an informal and international forum where they can present their projects and writing talent during the largest regional film market in North-Eastern Europe. We also invite talents from Baltic Event’s focus region of 2019 – Ireland to apply to POWR!
During our 4-day workshop from the 25th of November till the 28th of November, where 6 up-and-coming screenwriters will practice skills to pitch their projects through group sessions, talks and rehearsals. It is an open, generous, and sharing atmosphere, headed by our main tutor, Valeria Richter (Denmark), pitch coach Helene Granqvist (Sweden/Nordic Factory) and selected industry guests. The selected scriptwriters will present their projects on the 28th of November. It is an opportunity to hear the new voices and stories from the Baltic & Nordic film communities, and a voice from this year’s focus region Ireland.
